What is there to see in Atlanta? Well, lots of things, but we specifically wanted to visit Trader Joe's, the Dekalb Farmers Market and IKEA.
We started the morning with a good breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then made our way south about an hour.
Trader Joe's is a store I really wish we had up here, of course I bought nothing but sweet foods so maybe I should rethink that desire.
By far my favorite item there is the large container of ginger snap cookies. A friend this summer introduced me to the delicious cookies and I have craved them since! I bought 2.
The Dekalb Market was a new experience for all three of us ladies. It was very large and very crowded. It is a hot spot for any ingredient needed for any international dish. It was a treat to shop there, and I came home with some blue cheese, goat cheese and dark chocolate covered cashews. These are the main 3 food groups, by the way.
Of course there is no store that can quite compare to IKEA.
What happens when you send farm girls into IKEA? Well, we find uses for several items.
For example, this kitchen model would be great for processing chickens outside. Granted a lady or two looked at us like we were crazy while we discussed how useful this would be, but it would be nice.
If you are looking for a simple set up to process birds for your own freezer, check out IKEA. I think this set was $112.
The absolute best purchase of the day, however, was the milking stool. Who knew IKEA sold milking stools?
It was such a fabulous buy that we both, Laura and I, bought one. It came in several colors, but we both loved the pink.
It really spruces up the barn, right?
So if you are in the market for some farming essentials, don't forget to check out the nearest IKEA.
We had so much fun, and Ace was a fantastic passenger, that we are already planning another trip in a couple months.
Speaking of Ace, the boy is 4 months old today. He weighs in at 17.2 !
It's a nice day here and will be spring like all week. I am hoping we can get some outside chores done!
Happy Sunday Ya'll!
